Fearne Cotton has jumped on the oriental bandwagon for her latest Very clothing collection. We saw oriental-styled details all over the AW12 catwalks, perhaps most notably at Proenza Schouler, while Christopher Kane’s cool minimalist aesthetic was our favourite. But Fearne’s take on the trend is bolder and brighter.
While the presenter’s personal sense of style that we love is still evident, this is a pretty bold look. Are you a fan?
It’s the trend that just keeps on going. Circular-shaped sunglasses have been around since 2009 with everyone from edgy Lady Gaga and Mary-Kate Olsen to glossy celeb stylist Rachel Zoe rocking a pair. Fearne Cotton and Alexa Chung have made the look typically London-refuse-to-try-hard. Nice job girls.
Will you be partaking in some round sunglasses fun?
Awards, celebs blah blah blah. Let’s just look at the dresses shall we?
Top 5 BAFTA beauties:
On the other side of the Atlantic The Grammys were in full flow. We acknowledge there were some truly bonkers outfits. On the whole the others were very glam or simply very small! Here’s out top 3…maybe.
You know how we like to be positive about celebrities’ fashion choices (after all, we all make mistakes,) well let’s just say there were some interesting outfits on the red carpet at the UK’s National Television Awards last night!
However, between the neon sequins, tangoed legs and luminous feathers, two ladies stood out from the crowd and flew the flag for fashion-lovers. Congratulations Elle Macpherson and Fearne Cotton – you did us proud!
As we look at the top trends of 2011, one hair trend stands out above all others and it’s pink! From Katy Perry to Barbie, planet celeb has been thinking pink and our favourite to rock the hot hairstyle is Fearne Cotton – has managed to go pink TWICE this year!

In fact this trend was everywhere about a year ago or more (we love Fearne Cotton’s kooky look) but will bright tights tempt you out of your skinnies?
As we near the end of 2011 (retrospective coming up after Christmas!) there is one perhaps unlikely ‘celebrity’ that has changed the fashion landscape arguably more than any other this year.
Ok there are a number of contenders that could fit that statement (Lady Gaga springs to mind) but I’m thinking of Kate Middleton. Sales of ‘nude’ heels soared, clear tights are apparently acceptable again (maybe) and now Barbour jackets are cool … with the help of other more rock and roll celebrities such as Alexa Chung, the cast of Made in Chelsea and Fearne Cotton.
Once the preserve of aristocrats gone shooting pheasants (we believe this might still go on) Barbour’s £89 ‘Liddesdale’ padded jacket has actually sold out at Selfridges, contributing to sales rocketing by 435% – phew! And there are neons too.
Here are a few of our favourite Barbour babes- from real royals to style queens of the summer festivals.
Nylon is super hyping the brand comparing the ‘British invasion’ of Very to that of the Beatles. Other exports it waxes lyrical about are: Kate Moss, The Stones, The Clash, Simon Cowell (yup), Emma Watson, Robert Pattinson and Alexa Chung…as well as the swinging sixties itself.
And here’s what the US teen bible has to say about Fearne Cotton: “Nestled among the thousands of outfits is a capsule collection by Fearne Cotton, a British TV presenter who’s like a weird hybrid between Gwen Stefani and Luna Lovegood.” Love it!
The question is, will Fearne join the stylish Brits worshiped stateside?
Here’s the rest of the Nylon editorial:
“Cotton’s current heap of Very.com items are very Carnaby Street, circa the Help! album. There are tons of graphic mini-dresses, tweed capes with nearly obscene hemlines, sweeps of chiffon, and little heeled booties. There’s also Cotton herself, posing in velcro-curled blonde bedhead with vinyl-colored cat eyes.
“We’re sort of in love with the entire clump of clothes on the site, and since they’re all – all! – under $120, we might be able to buy a few pieces without worrying about a trend overload. On that note, to avoid looking like a Hard Day’s Night costume assignment, you might want to pair these clothes with a modern topknot or ponytail and Doc Martens… You can also just break out the white eyeliner and Kinks records and go with it, as long as you promise not to start saying slang words like “bird” and “bloke” and “minger.” (“Fetch,” it goes without saying, is also completely off limits.)”
We love you Fearne, and Nylon!
We love Fearne Cotton’s style and here’s a look that you can get your hands on from £25. We’re always impressed at Fearne’s ability to mix high street and designer pieces and here she rocks a £25 stripy shift dress from River Island… a couple of weeks back it was a polka dot dress from Topshop.
Team with cheap and chic burgundy tights, ankle boots and kooky accessories to get Fearne’s look.
It’s so seventies glam, perfectly on-trend and we love Blondie. Just one more tiny thing – we’re not sure that Fearne needs such heavy airbrushing but it does give that late 70s/early 80s look seen on plenty of record sleeves.
Fearne reportedly told Closer magazine: “I like the dress to be the focus of a party outfit, so I usually wear it without a necklace and add a couple of rings and a big pair of heels. At party time, my motto tends to be legs out but arms in.”
